    Goal and intention setting for 2021

    Goal and intention setting for 2021

    I've crashed Erika's episode this week as it was such a good conversation and I wanted to share it with you guys here too.
    We got a lot of questions from you all about how Erika and I set our goals and intentions for each new year, and we wanted to give you the actionable steps that we take to refine how we want to approach a new year.

    In this episode Erika and I talk through our personal goals and intentions for 2021. My word for 2021 is BREATHE, and so when I look back on the year that was 2020, I can be sure of what I want to take with me into 2021 to accommodate more conscious breath and simplicity. From reflection I’m also able to look at what I want to leave behind.
    We provide so much value in this episode today, so be sure to grab a pen and paper and take some notes.

    Men need to dream more

    Men need to dream more

    What I’ve noticed through the work that I do, especially when I’m working with couples is that the female of the relationship is good at dreaming big, setting goals, thinking about all the things that could be achieved, and the male in the relationships is more rigid. Men struggle to dream and they almost assign themselves the role of being the rational, logical one of the relationship to allow their partner to have the big dreams.
    I can resonate with this as this used to be the case with myself and Erika. She is the big dreamer and the action taker, and I was bringing her back down to earth sometimes with the rational, logical steps that were needed. So I found myself not dreaming of anything for myself.
    When I started to practice dreaming of all the things I could achieve, I really started to see the power in it, and this is what I want to share with you guys today.
    In this episode I give you some practical tools that can help you dream bigger for yourself. It’s not easy and you may feel a bit silly to begin with, but the more you practice, the better you will become and the possibilities will start to feel more endless.

    2020 Reflection Questions

    2020 Reflection Questions

    As we come towards the end of 2020 after what has been a very strange year, I wanted to share with you the questions that I like to ask myself at the end of every year. I think it’s important to ask yourself questions so that you’re able to push towards the life that you want to create for yourself and those around you over the next 365 days.
    So today I’m sharing with you the questions that I ask myself, in the hope that you will create questions for yourself and contemplate what 2020 has looked like for you.

    Money Money Money

    Money Money Money

    The way I was brought up was that in order to get money, you needed to work really, really hard. You needed to get a good education and then find a job where you could work your way up, work hard and the result would be lots of money. I tried that for a long time and it never really worked out very well. Not because I wasn't earning enough, but because my money mindset was bad. I wasn't treating money with the respect that it deserved. I wasn't looking at the true value exchange that money is.
    In this episode today, I talk about how my concept of what money is has changed, what my life looks like now and how I approach my career.
    There are two books that I've read that have changed my life and mindset around money, which I highly recommend you check out if you're struggling with money.

    Intolerance

    Intolerance

    I have something on my mind that's bothering me, and to be honest I don't have the answer to it. But I feel it's important to voice these thoughts and perhaps start up a discussion.
    What's triggered me is I saw a post the other day about Harry Styles wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue (https://www.vogue.com/article/harry-styles-cover-december-2020) and the backlash that was received. There were comments effectively saying, "Bring back the manly man". This really bothered me because it creates confusion and an intolerance that we really don't need.
    From the work that I do with my clients, a lot of men struggle with the idea of what it means to be a man. Men are confused about how they are supposed to show up in the world, and comments like the one I've mentioned don't help. We've come so far in encouraging men to embrace the feminine side and allowing themselves to feel more emotions, and then comments like this saying that we should bring back the manly men, just completely derails the whole conversation.
    I don't know what the answer is here. Tolerance is important but of course I realise that we can't be tolerant of every behaviour because there are plenty of behaviours and actions that are deplorable, but intolerance on something like this seems counterproductive.
    I'd love your thoughts. Reach out to me on Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/manfulnessmen/)!

    Rituals and Rites of Passion with Tim Morrison

    Rituals and Rites of Passion with Tim Morrison

    I have another interview coming up for you today and I have to say, I’m loving these sessions. It’s so great to connect with other men and have those deeper conversations.
    On the podcast today I’m joined by Tim Morrison. I’ve been following Tim for some time and I have been very impressed with the incredible work he is doing for men in the personal development space.
    Tim began his journey as a personal trainer at the age of 17 and fell in love with deep, transformational work, coaching people from the inside out.
    During this time, Tim was dedicated to his career as a Thai boxer, competing at high level which saw him win the State and Australian WKN lightweight title, fighting within Australia and also Russia and Thailand.
    After a severe career ending neck injury, Tim went into his own deep transformational space, losing himself and life as he knew it. He went from a life of passion and purpose to a dark depression, suicidal instincts and what felt like no reason to live, after losing what mattered most to him.
    After combating a number of mental health issues, Tim vowed that if he ever got through this then he would share how with others.
    We touch on so many fantastic topics today such as:

    * Masculinity and this idea of hurt masculinity
    * Improving our relationships
    * Shamanic work
    * The power of breathwork
    * The wounds that are birthed in us as children, and how we can heal from those
    * Releasing our traumas to become happier, healthier individuals.
